Unambiguous Entropic Evaluation of a Complicated Construction Process
Abstract: There exist very complicated creative fields of human activities. As a rule, these fields comprise a large number of internal objects involving huge amounts of people, where large financial and material resources are concentrated. Operative management of such objects is extremely difficult due to their complicacy and multidisciplinary character, as well as due to the absence of criteria allowing an unambiguous estimation of the completeness of works both at a separate object and at the created system on the whole. The availability of such a criterion will make it possible to redirect resources more rationally so that to save time and means while completing the intended project. The suggested criterion of such kind is based on the properties of entropy, which is the principal invariant of today’s natural science. This parameter is perceived ambiguously, being permanently discussed in technical literature. Physical character of this parameter has been validated in detail by the Author [1] [2] who has shown its universality for the analysis of complicated systems at their modification. In the present paper, the development of such a criterion for a complicated engineering project is considered. However, this approach can be used for the analysis of complicated technical projects in other fields of human activities, as well.
